Read full description of the books:
A Land Remembered has become Florida's favorite novel. This Student Edition in two volumes makes this rich, rugged story of the American pioneer spirit more accessible to young readers.
In VOLUME 1, readers meet young Zech MacIvey, who learns to ride like the wind through the Florida scrub on Ishmael, his marshtackie horse, with his dogs, Nip and Tuck, at his side. His parents, Tobias and Emma, scratch a living from the land, gathering wild cows from the swamp and herding them across the state to market. Zech learns the ways of the land from the Seminoles, with whom his life becomes entwined as he grows into manhood.
In VOLUME 2, with the birth of Zech and Glenda's son, Solomon, a new generation of the MacIveys learns to ride horses, drive cattle, and teach rustlers a thing or two. Sol and his family earn more and more gold doubloons from cattle sales, as well as dollars from their orange groves. They invest in buying land, once free to all, now owned and fenced and increasingly populated, until it becomes just a land remembered.
The Teacher's Manual help educators use A Land Remembered to teach language arts, social studies, and science according to the Sunshine State Standards of the Florida Department of Education.
